QUARTERFINAL – GAME-5 – 19.03.2019

SC BERN vs GENÈVE SERVETTE HC – PostFinance Arena – 20:00


THE KEY FACTOR

Intensity

Bern must bring more intensity in the games. The Mutzen have enough talent in order to be dominant but they still look a bit like lions in a cage… Daniele Grassi – and the whole 4th line – put a lot of intenstiy on display during game-4. The hope is that the all the players follow the example.

WHAT DID WORK

Reaction

Bern lost game-1 at home… and then went to win in Genève. Then they lost game-3 at home in a crazy game that lasted almost 100 minutes… but then when to win once again in Genève. Kari Jalonen’s troops were able to bounce back twice when they looked downhearted. This is great!

WHAT CAN IMPROVE

The offensive record

Bern have so much talent… but the truth is that they scored only 7 goals in 4 games and that they have a 5.19% scoring percentage which is the lowest one of the playoffs. Robert Mayer is on fire but the Mutzen must find a way to be more merciless.

THE KEY FACTOR

The head

Genève Servette can’t afford to lose their heads… they just lost also Henrik Tömmernes because of injury and that was the umpteenth confirmation that this season nothing is easy for McSorley’s troops. Yet, provided that they can stay focused and calm, the Eagles can go and win for a third consecutive time at the PostFinance Arena.

WHAT DID WORK

Character

The Eagles won two times in Bern including once after an epic battle. Moreover, they’ve always been able to react even when Bern put them under pressure. We mean, this group of lads have got some real character!

WHAT CAN IMPROVE

Focus

Genève Servette went behind 2-goals by the end of the second period for 3 times out of 4. Bern are strong, of course… but the Eagle must find a way to score the first goal. It’s very tiring and frustrating (both mentally and physically) when you’re always forced to chase your opponents.
